1. It's exactly one month until the KRRT Half Marathon. It's been two years since I ran a half and it was at this event. If everything goes to plan, meaning Mother Nature doesn't decide to have a hot flash that day, I'll be coming away with a shiny new PR. I've been hitting all my paces in training and am in a good place mentally. The only thing that sucks the life out of me is the heat.

2. I've been toying with the idea of running a marathon sooner rather than later. Just for kicks I entered in my hopeful finishing time for the upcoming half into the Smartcoach program and when I scrolled down to see what it had my estimated marathon finish time as, I nearly fainted, cried, and pooped my pants.
|Hee hee...I'm not telling you!|
3. I'm on pace for my first ever 100 mile month! I didn't even hit the 100 mile mark when training for either of my two marathons. I'm coming up on a pretty crazy week with Memorial Day, a yard sale, Finn's birthday, a field trip for Finn's preschool, and his actual party including an epic cake. Let's see if I can fit it all in - I'll need to go running to keep my sanity!
